up as i can feel your pain too. across the critical battleground state of ohio, mitt romney has been a man on a mission to connect with voters. >> my heart aches for the people i've seen. >> reporter: the message of the day was not only that he can fix the economy, it's that he can feel it. >> there are so many in our country that are hurting right now. i want to help them. i know what it takes to get an economy going again and creating jobs. >> reporter: the straight from the heart appeal is echoed in a new ad that shows romney looking directly into the camera. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. >> reporter: translation, pay no attention to the man in that hidden camera video. >> the 47% who are with him, who are dependent on government very much -- >> reporter: but for romney when it rains it pours. his two-day under steady showers has a feel of a race against time. a new poll quinnipiac finds romney trailing the president by ten points in ohio, nine points in florida and 12 in pen
four years ago. states governor romney very much needs to win this time. go to the electoral map to show you why. final six weeks, 237 electoral votes strong or leaning the president's way. these are the toss up states. the golden states. forget the rest of them. if the president can keep that lead and carry florida, if the president can keep that lead and carry ohio, the race is to 270, wolf, that would be in two words game over. >> gloria, if you look at the strength that the president has in these states, you see something fascinating. >> it is. i call it the empathy question. which candidate is seen as advancing the interest of the middle class? you see the president up by 25 points on that question in florida, by 19 points in ohio. and that is of course what people vote on. because everybody says they're middle class. so this is essentially asking, who's the fellow who cares more about my interests? and with obama up by those considerable double digits, it's very, very difficult for mitt romney. >> puts the pressure on romney in these presidential debates, the first one a we
senate repuan annnced m romney. he was able to wi t state, and even though he had some credentials, he was ahead of the ub forroh at one time, and so this is a state that haseen trendiittlng a le more republican in recent years. they have a republican governor now replacing the outgoing democratic governor ed rendell, and i th r tmney campaig senses an opportunity here, but haveo advertisi dollars in. you have to back up that talk of edicti a w in pennsylvania hat the romney so far campaign has done that. i asked ayaide, well, do you have any plans to do that he said that's for us to know and for the obama campaign to worry about. perhaps setting some expectations here in pennsylvania as well, suzanne. >> all right. thank you very much. >>> i want to you stick around. just get started with politics at the half hour. we'ring to seeheate numbs on the ecomy, how it's playing out for both candidates. how high the stakes are f loo wednesday night's debate. owerteam, of course, is trying pectations. and we're going to tell you what your favorite brand of beer says about your politics. all t
on this phony contrived war on women. romney is losing women by double digits in some swing states. he ought to call out and say to the president you and your party only want to talk to women from the waist down. i want to talk to them from the waist up. that's where their brains, hearts, eyes and ears are. i think that biology and chemistry matter but this year, the most important subject is math. here's the math of your four years and here's the math -- >> kellyanne, if president obama uses the phrase i want to talk to you from the waist up or whatever you suggest, or mitt romney would say that, i would imagine we will all be out of a job. i'm not quite sure what would happen. it would be one of the great debate moments in history. >> i think one of the things that mitt romney has to be prepared for, is jim lehrer asking him the question of whether he endorses todd akin in missouri because if he endorses akin he's damned. if he doesn't, he's damned. >> i would say it all depends which mitt romney you want to answer the question. the one from eight years ago or the one now because have i co

, you're right. mitt romney did predict he's going to win the state of pennsylvania come november. but even though his campaign has mainly been a focus on fixing the nation's economy, mitt romney in recent days has been stepping up his attacks on the president on the issue of national security. and specifically lately on who's a better friend of israel. and there are signs the obama campaign is paying attention. at a military academy in pennsylvania, mitt romney tried to make the case for a new commander in chief. romney once again questioned the president's recent description of events in the middle east as bumps in the road. >> i sure as heck don't consider iran becoming nuclear a bump in the road. we need someone who recognizes the seriousness of what's ahead and is willing to lead. >> reporter: romney's tough talk on iran follows israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu's drawing attention at the united nations to the nuclear worries. >> a red line should be drawn right here. >> reporter: just days after the president declined to meet with netanyahu in new york, the two leade
the state's senior citizens, biden said romney's plan to lower taxes would force the nation's elderly to pick up the tab. >> their plan they have for social security, the one they have now, would raise taxes on your social security. >> reporter: romney, who has accused the president of misleading the public on the subject of taxes repeated his pledge on the issue. >> i will not raise taxes on middle income americans. >> reporter: less than one week from his debate withhe president, romney is trying to expand the election map boldly predicting twice during his visit to pennsylvia that he can win here. >> you know, i've got l secret here. and that is that obama campaign thinks pennsylvania's in their pocket. they don't need to worry about it. and you're right and they're wrong. we're going to win pennsylvania. we're going to take the white house. >> reporter: it could be a questionable move. not only does romney have ground to make up in swing states like ohio and florida, the latest cnn poll of polls in pennsylvania shows romney trailing the president by ten points. republicans have t
his lead in the state. mitt romney also in the buckeye state telling audiences he cares about the people of america. romney acknowledging that some of the polls show him behind president obama. but he pointed to the first presidential debate less than a week from now as a potential turning point in the race. >>> in new york it was a rough ride for nearly 200 people aboard a brazilian jetliner from rio. they were bracing for a crash landing at kennedy airport because the landing gear was stuck sideways. you can see it there. the pilot circled twice before touching down. the nose gear seemed to miraculously straighten itself out just before the plane hit the tarmac. thankfully no one was injured. but some anxious moments aboard that plane. >>> airlines across the country are raking in big profits from what used to be a free service. they're pocketing billions of dollars in baggage fees all coming at the expense of fed up passengers. abc's brandi hitt has the story. >> reporter: checking your bag at the airport has added up to big business for u.s. airlines. so big airlines raked
. but first, to politics. >>> mitt romney is venturing out of the swing states today. romney this hour is trying to pluck pennsylvania from the grasp of president obama with just 39 days until the election. pennsylvania's one of the states that is leaning toward obama, but not -- so, jim, we have been seeing romney confine his campaign to the nine swing states, why is he taking a shot at a state that has been leaning obama? >> reporter: yeah, fredricka, it did catch a lot of people off guard today to hear mitt romney not only at a fund-raiser earlier this morning but at an event that wrapped up here at a valley forge military academy. he said he'll win the state of pennsylvania and this state has not traditionally in the last several months been lumped in with the other swing states out there that both president obama and mitt romney are neck and neck in. we have seen a lot of swing states in recent days moving away from mitt romney. you saw the latest battleground polls in ohio and florida where president obama increased his lead over mitt romney, but just a few moments ago here at th
. take a look at this, shows governor romney with a double-digit lead among veterans in three states. in florida, mitt romney is up by 20 percentage points. another study, including third-party candidates finds the majority of veterans and military families in colorado favor governor romney. you can put that first screen up again, and we will discuss it with chris stirewalt. before we put you on screen, a 20-point advantage for romney in florida, 12 points in ohio and 12 points in virginia, all among military veterans. can you tell us, chris, what is going on? how is the voting bloc? >> i'm sure that many viewers like you put things back up now. the true picture is, florida, virginia, north carolina -- these are states with very substantial veteran and military populations. republicans generally do better among those who have served in the military. john mccain did not do quite as well. when you look at the narrow states come in there. if things get out of whack for the president with military voters and veterans. when we look at hispanic voters, the goal isn't mitt romney doesn't wa
have done it in all of their states, mitt romney did it when he was governor of massachusetts, $3.5 billion deficit eliminated, and it can be done. is it going to be easy? are people going to have short-term pain? yes. is it necessary in order to be -- restore the fiscal posture of the u.s., absolutely. >> thank you, governor mcdodge. the question for both candidates is going to be what sacrifice and what specifics are they willing to cut and where and how does it all add up. thank you very much. we'll be watching the debates with you and others. and up next, back to the bench. what to expect when the supreme court can veens today for the new term. you're watching "andrea mitchell reports" only on msnbc. [ male announcer ] let's say you need to take care of legal matters. wouldn't it be nice if there was an easier, less-expensive option than using a traditional lawyer? well, legalzoom came up with a better way. we took the best of the old and combined it with modern technology. together you get quality services on your terms, with total customer support. legalzoom documents have b
. this is one of the states where if mitt romney's economic argument, the choice election that, in fact, john roberts was talking about a moment ago, if it is going to work it will is to work in the states like nevada. right now, though, the 39 -- president has the edge. >>shepard: thank you. 36 daze until the election itself and as we have been reporting national polls show it is a tight race. the "washington post" and abc survey shows president obama leading 49 percent to 47 percent. when you look at some of the wing states that could decide this thing the president has gained some ground recently. the size of the lead varies but the average from the polls from real clear politics finds him ahead in most of the key election battlegrounds including ohio, florida, virginia and iowa. we are bringing in a politics reporter for. >> real clear politics. the governor seems to understand and has said that he has some work to do here. it sounds like strategies are changing in an effort to turn the battleground state numbers toward him. >>guest: right. romney has been running a national campaign base
reagan got 49 states. blaming everything else but where the blame lies. and that is mitt romney and his horrible campaign. peggy noonan was right. you know, these idiots blast people like peggy noonan, these idiots blast people like "the wall street journal." these idiots blast people like laura ingram. why aren't you a loyal republican? well, i think a loyal republican says the house is on fire. and time's running out. if we want to save this house, we'd better do it now. i tried that a couple of weeks ago. guess what? time's running out. you know when early voting starts in ohio? less than a week. >> 26 states have already started voting. >> 26 states have already started early voting. in ohio where we're going to show some polls this morning that show just how horribly mitt romney's doing in ohio. you know what? i was saying last week there are 45 days. there aren't really 45 days left. they've got to turn this thing around or they lose. this is what jason riley wrote in "the wall street journal" yesterday. media blame game. this from a conservative publication, by the way, extreme r
. governor romney is there today. it is significant bus tour in the buckeye state. it is important with 18 electoral votes. >> reporter: the polls suggest --. bill: what is the romney team seeing in ohio today, carl? >> reporter: they recognize the polls are shading more and more to mr. obama. the president has growing lead in the buckeye state. this is state romney can not afford to lose if i wants to become president. the history is known. no republican ever won the white house without going first through ohio and winning it. they will have joint events in ohio. mr. romney holding three events in ohio. the campaign is uping tempo. they recognize as of today we're six weeks away from the election and may well be decided in ohio. romney and ryan will campaign again together in the future. all of this is really run up to debate season of next month. we are one week away actually, eight days away. the first debate takes place in colorado next week. every single moment matters. today is illustration of romney's readiness to deal with more than just a jobs and economic campaign. he has to show
states and more votes from romney in other states. north carolina and michigan. a wasted vote it is a vote for somebody you don't believe in. i make a pitch that everybody waste their vote on may and i am the next president of the united states. based on my resume, there is nothing to suggest that i could not do the job but thati would do a good job at it. host: richard from new york, republican, thank you for waiting. caller: i appreciate what you did with that one debate when you mentioned ron paul. you and him what had been a good team. the only other choice besides ron paul is you. they said the less of two evils is still an evil. all this promoting the homosexual agenda. we have to have a change. ron paul was the grandfather of the tea party. i hope to see you on the show. i appreciate you running. guest: well, thank you. i support marriage equality. i think marriage equality is a constitutionally guaranteed act, on par with the civil-rights of the 1960's. host: john from illinois. john is an independent. hey there. caller: the only problem that i have is about the tax is
is holed up in vegas for two days preparing. mitt romney will be in colorado tonight. the latest poll shows president obama and mitt romney locked in a tight race nationally. but where it counts, those battle ground states, the president still leads. and here's another interesting poll. most people think the president will win the first debate which may be why he's trying to lower expectations. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the the zingers. governor romney is good. i'm just okay. >> and paul ryan played his own version. >> president obama is a gifted speaker. he's been on the national stage for many years. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> but if all candidates are trying to lower expectations, maybe chris christie missed that memo. >> governor romney's going to lay out his vision for a better and greater america for greater opportunity for all of our citizens. and i think that's when you're going to see this race really start to tighten and move in governor romney's direction. come th
sharing the stage with the 42nd president of the united states, bill clinton. mr. romney took the opportunity to say that the united states is going about its foreign aid all in the wrong way. to foster work and enterprise in the middle east and in other developing countries, i'll initial nate somethi initiate something i'll call prosperity pacts. the program in exchange for removing barrierses and opening their markets to u.s. investment and trade, they will receive assistance packages focused on developing the institutions of liberty. >> later today governor romney will link up with his running mate in ohio where there is a brand new cnn poll of polls, and it shows the romney/ryan ticket is running six points behind the obama/biden ticket. we've also got some new florida numbers as well. that shows a four-point edge for the democrats. let me remind you, that's a poll of polls, so the numbers are the numbers. there's no margin of error. what you see is what you get, at least according to the poll. we're going to hear from the president again next hour. we'll speak at the clin
of the swing states that will decide the presidential election. well, here is mitt romney, we have heard these words before, sounds as though he's downplaying expectations as they say. take a listen. >> people want to know who is going to win, who is going to score the punches and who is going to make the biggest difference in the arguments they make and there is going to be all the scoring of winning and losing. >> so romney is saying, no, it is not about winning, not about losing, it is about america. but you have a lot of republicans, newt gingrich, for example, saying, hey, mitt romney, get out there, pick a fight, and win it. jim acosta with me now from the romney campaign. the debate, of course, tomorrow night in denver, you, sir, are in littleton, colorado. should we take mitt romney at face value when he says this debate is not about me winning? >> reporter: well, brooke, i think this is all part of the debate expectations game that has been going on for several days now. i think you also sort of heard mitt romney downplay some of the talk that has been going on since the new yor
romney is campaigning today, as you saw moments ago, in the state of pennsylvania. he's attending a rally near philadelphia. governor romney is trailing in statewide polls, but earlier today he was telling donors that he is going to win the state of pennsylvania. really? all right, let's take a closer look at this battleground, swing state, the state of pennsylvania. here you've got 12 important battle growpped states identified in yellow, so let's take a closer look at pennsylvania. here's their economy. unemployment rate identical to the national average of 8.1%. the average price of gasoline has actually doubled in the time that president obama has been in office, foreclosure one out of more than 1,000, and the number of visits there, well, the president two, mitt romney four. that'll soon change. the population is 12.7 million. now, this is the important stat here, 20 out of 270 electoral votes. so in terms of the electoral college, very important. a republican governor, these are the two main industries, health care and manufacturing. um, we're going to talk about coal in just a mome
for mitt romney this week. >> a huge opportunity for mitt romney. he could take this race in the states that he's losing right now and change the dynamic of this race just by standing on stage and performing well. >> so much riding on it. this first debate, viewers, anywhere between 50 million, 60 million viewers are the estimates. this year more important than ever the early voting that's taking place. >> early voting has taken place in key states like iowa right now and voters willing watching now, and voters are going to be wanting this. they're already voting, and the best thing about this debate for these guys, it's the first authentic moment in a while where voters want to tune in and pay attention. it's not a television ad, it's not a convention but a real authentic moment they really take cues from. >> it's something to think about. by election day a third of american voters might have already gone to the poll. >> campaigns used to have to plan toward one election day and now they can plan toward 30 or 35 election days, and that's why this debate is crucial because voting is alr
% over mitt romney. since nevada was so hard hit with these economic woes this is the kind of state where mitt romney has to break through. megyn: we'll bring you this presidential debate live. it will be hosted by yours truly along with bret baier. we hope you will join us for that and the post-game analysis right here on fnc. a growing debate over the money we send to egypt after one congresswoman puts $450 million of u.s. aid to that country on hold. september 12 we watched mobs in cairo tear down the american flag and replace it with a black islamic flag of their own. as we learn $450 million is just a portion of what we send their way questions are coming up about what we want to do before we send any more taxpayer dollars overseas. joining me now, former ambassador to the united nations and fox news contributor, john bolton. this congresswoman has blocked the $450 million. she says given the relationship we have with them i don't know if we are justified in forking this over immediately. >> i think having congress show how outraged it is about it egyptian government's behavior is a
the romney camp, as good news, chris, since he is shown as trail anything a lot of these swing state polls as well. >> well, certainly it's not good news if you're president obama. if that's true, if you really have 18% persuadable voters, this comes after fife months -- five months of the most stained, negative attack, most personal barrage against a candidate by an incumbent president that we've ever seen. if there's still 18% of the people that say, well, you know, i'm hope to this guy, i'm open to hear what he has to say, that would include some romney voters who might be open to the president, but when you'd have an incumbent,ou'd expect that much persuade about would be good news for the challenger, that the president hasn't been able to convince all the persuadable voters that mitt romney is, in fact, a vampire. megyn: now, we saw during the republican presidential primary that these debates really can have an effect. candidates really were forced to leave the race based on their debate performances occasionally during that republican primary, so it's no accident that we have both s
states, that was a state that was supposed to be the relatively easy gift for romney. there's a one or two-point race in north carolina on october 1st. they're facing an uphill slide across the board and they know it. >> by the way, you can't run 30-second ads in enough places to do this. if you're going to win, if you're going to turn things around, i'll say the quote that drives liberals crazy, a rising tide lifts all boats, this first debate on wednesday, it's got to shock the campaign back to life. because if romney does well, you're not going to be able to buy enough ads to do what a great performance by mitt romney would do on wednesday night. that would tighten it in ohio. it would tighten it in north carolina. probably go ahead in north carolina. it would tie it in iowa, probably tie it up in iowa. that's why you can't buy your way out of this mess the romney campaign is in right now, but you can outdebate them. >> more than anything else what seemed to have happened in august was democrats got enthused by their convention more than republicans did. the latest polling shows
the state, day after day, about how the economy there is really growing and booming. and romney doesn't necessarily, you know, say the same thing. it's kind of mixed messages. and he also hasn't come up with a really strong, coherent response, to the auto bailout. he says let detroit go bankrupt. there's a supply chain, you know, a lot of manufacturers in ohio. the obama campaign talks about this day after day after day after day and romney campaign doesn't really have much of an answer for it. romney's going to ohio after his new york visit to join up with paul ryan for a bus tour. they know how important it is and they definitely have some work to do, john. >> all right. thank you, peter hamby in washington. the romney ohio bus tour begins today. thanks very much. >>> 35 minutes past the hour. the fbi will investigate the controversial shooting death of a disabled man. this was by police in houston. on saturday, officers were called to a group home for mentally ill people. responding to reports that a wheelchair-bound resident was acting aggressively. police say the double amputee a
% of latino vote. romney need at least a quarter to a third of latino vote toeshs competitive in states like colorado where the debate is and that kind of thing. real quickly because i want to get to donna on this issue. what does he need to do to appeal to latino voters? >> i think latino voters need to know more about mitt romney. they know very little. precious little about him. the little they do know they don't like. he has begun to change his tone. ep needs to continue doing latino outreach and doing events, doing interviews, doing media, pouring money and resources into paid media and to outreach efforts. >> donna to that point, romney has actually moved closer to president obama on immigration issues just very recently saying he's not is going to rerocky the visas, deport young illegal immigrants under the new law here. does that present a problem to the president if he moves close center >> look we know mitt romney has a pension for etch-a-sketch. he likes to erase his previous statements and previous support for sb-1070 show me your papers in arizona. he's turned his back on latino
on the global stage. >> while republican challenger, mitt romney, reenergizes his campaign with a bus tour through a key battleground state. it is "your voice, your vote" on this tuesday, september 25th. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now." >>> good morning, i'm john muller. >> i'm sunny hostin. paula and rob are on assignment. we'll got to presidential politics and the first couple's appearance on "the view" in our top story. >>> then to southern california where high school students and soccer coach under arrest in a hazing scandal. we will bring you those details. they're disturbing. >>> also this morning, the plan to passion out the so-called morning-after contraceptive pill to students as young as 14 years old. what administrators and parents have to say about this. i am just not quite sure what i feel. >> this is a tough one. a lot of opinions. we'll talk about it. >>> a new glimpse inside john f. kennedy's presidency through secret recordings made in the oval office. his haunting words in an abc news exclusive. >>> first, president obama steps on to the world stage
is responsible is the attorney general of the united states. congress ryan, mitt romney, and congress is correct it's time for eric holder to go. there is only five weeks between thousand and the election. there is political consequences and there is real consequences here. even the inspector general's report did not absolve eric holder as he claims it did. he still should have known what was going on with such a massive operation. martha: it did show he didn't know. you are saying that isn't enough. i get that. but there is no indication that the administration has any intention of changing their attorney general, jay. >> that right. i think that's the political reality of the situation. that's why congressman issa has moved for contempt proceedings against attorney general holder. politically the president of the youth is not going to want to make a move at the department of justice which will look like a sign of weakness. we have a dead border patrol agent at the hands our own weapons. we have 16 mexican teenagers killed at hands our weapons in mexico with no knowledge of the mexican governme
, mitt romney will be aggressively storming the campaign trail. >> we're going to get this country on the right track to do what needs to be done. >> reporter: he continued his swing through colorado, the state president obama won in 2008, but is in a dead heat six weeks out from election day. in an interview with abc news, romney said voters have an important choice. >> my job is to present in as clear a manner as i can my view of how to get this economy going and contrast it with the view of a president who is a status quo economic model president. >> reporter: today romney kicks off a bus tour in battleground ohio. this is the last full week of campaigning, before the presidential debates begin and take over the candidates' attention. president obama was off the campaign trail in new york for the annual united nations general assembly. but he stopped by abc's "the view" with the first lady. >> i've just got a different vision about how we grow an economy. i think, barbara, you grow an economy from the middle out, not from the top down. >> today president obama and mitt romney wi
challenger has a benefit when they get up on the stage against the president of the united states. the debates level the playing field. they put you on the stage in an equal footing. i think mitt romney comes into the debate with an advantage because of that. i think the question in this race, all campaigns are different and i think in this race, this is very much of a choice election. i think people see very different visions for the future between these two candidates and my guess is, when we get out of the debates they are going to continue to see the two visions and right now they're picking barack obama's vision. i think in 2004, it was more of a referendum on bush and i think ultimately people decided that the referendum they wanteded to stay with the incumbent. i think this election is a little different. >> i'm not sure you got to the meat of my question, why your guy won the debates but lost eat lex. >> well, again, i think he won the debates because when standing on the stage with the president of the united states and you give a decent performance you're going to -- the
industry. the interest of agriculture and the united states are aligned and i am appalled that neither governor romney or president obama is talking about agriculture in this campaign. it is an important part, a foundation of the u.s. economy. ethanol, i fought for ethanol since i was governor. it has lowered the price of fuel. it is created tens of thousands of jobs. i was in blair last week, a great example of bipartisan effort. there is a new dcompany with a hundred jobs. is is not a failure. this is not a threat to our economy. the interest of agriculture and the united states are completely in alignment. there's no need to choose. >> senator fischer? >> i grew up in lincoln. my husband and i have been married for 40 years. agriculture is important to the state. what is important is that we always work together as a state. is urban and rural interests, and because of agriculture, it is important to the state of nebraska a. one entry jobs is dependent on the agriculture economy. people across nebraska realize and understand that. we need to keep in mind, a balancing act. we have don
